Color Trip: Promo Gets Playful In Pastels
Spring is the unofficial season of pastels, and it just so happens that this year, soft-hued shades are also trending.
From Veri Peri, Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year, to Spun Sugar and Gossamer Pink, two sweet colors Pantone Color Institute identified in a spring/summer 2022 trend report, to runway-spotted hues like soft lilac and canary yellow, these shades are inspiring designers and exciting consumers, and they’re the perfect refresh coming out of winter.
Here are a few wearables available in peaches-in-cream pastels that consumers will love.
